PEISO season finale with guest conductor Daniel Black

Daniel Black

The PEI Symphony Orchestra (PEISO) will present its season finale under the baton of guest conductor Daniel Black. The performance will be held on April 7 at 2:30 pm in the Sobey Family Theatre at the Confederation Centre of the Arts. Marking the culmination of a vibrant season, this concert is the final installment in a series featuring four guest conductors—each a finalist in the search for the next PEISO music director. 

Daniel Black, known for his compelling interpretations and engaging performances, will lead the orchestra through an adventurous program that includes: Dinuk Wijeratne: Yatra; Jocelyn Morlock: My Name is Amanda Todd; Joseph Bologne: Symphony in D Major; Johannes Brahms: Academic Festival Overture; and Antonín Dvořák: Symphony No. 8 “Evergreen.”

Daniel Black is a Montreal-based American conductor celebrated for his performances across a diverse repertoire. His career highlights include a successful tenure with the Florida Orchestra, guest conducting roles with prestigious ensembles, and leading world premieres and US debuts of significant works. Black’s innovative programming and dedication to expanding the core orchestral repertoire, combined with his achievements in both symphonic and opera settings, underscore his versatility and depth as a conductor.

This concert not only offers a journey through diverse musical landscapes but also represents a significant moment in the PEISO’s 56th season, highlighting the orchestra’s commitment to excellence and innovation. Celebrating the conclusion of a season that welcomed memorable guest conductors Jaelem Bhate, Kira Omelchenko, Juliane Gallant, and now Daniel Black, we now look toward a future under the guidance of a new music director.
